Best known for his work as the Writer and Cartoonist of one of the longest-running internationally syndicated daily comic strips, NANCY (a character created by Ernie Bushmiller in 1933), Guy Gilchrist took over the strip in 1995. After high school, Guy was already working in NYC for Disney and others, as well as full time for Weekly Reader Books. At the age of 24, he was hand-selected to create Jim Henson's Muppets Comic Strip (which was wildly successful and printed worldwide in over 660 newspapers daily from 1981 1986). Throughout the years, Guy has set his hand to such notable cartoons as Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Fraggle Rock and The Pink Panther (to name a few), and was the instrumental in the creation of The Muppet Babies.
Gilchrist currently resides in Gallatin, Tenn. (a suburb of Nashville, which he proudly calls home). Gilchrist's work is currently on exhibit at the Nashville International Airport, Museums around the world, the Walt Disney Museum in Marceline, Mo., as well as permanently enshrined in the Smithsonian Institution.
